Commencement In-Person Graduation Experiences

The Commencement Walk

While not a traditional ceremony, these gatherings will allow you the experience of crossing the stage as your name is announced, to be congratulated by SXU leadership, faculty and staff and have a professional photograph taken.

We invite you to bring two guests to enjoy the experience live with you, and it will be webcast for other family and friends to enjoy.

  • The Commencement Walk will be held in the Butler Reception Room, located in the Warde Academic Center.
  • Participants will be grouped into 15-minute time slots.
  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED for all graduates and guests to gain access to the facility. Graduates may temporarily remove their masks for a photo.
  • Graduates should come dressed in their regalia and bring their diploma covers to their scheduled session. Diploma covers for the Class of 2021 are being mailed to graduates to have in time for their scheduled session.
Registration is required and can be accessed by clicking the links below. Registration closed April 26, 2021. However, limited spots are still available. Students who still wish to register should contact commencement@sxu.edu.
